    Mitch Epstein's latest project takes on one of the most loaded issues on the nation's agenda: what & who powers America? From 2003-2008, prompted by the evacuation of an environmentally compromised Ohio town, the photographer travelledthe country documenting energy 'hot spots,' where fossil fuel, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind and solar power are produced, encountering further contaminations, Homeland (in)Security obstacles, corporate invincibility and the occasional token of hope in a post-Katrina and post-Patriot Act America. The angle of engagment permitted Epstein often varied, so that many of the power plants & refineries were shot at enforced distances. An altogether compelling portrait. Color.
  • Andrew Savulich: The City

    By Andrew Savulich

    Our Price: $27.00
    • Format: Oversize Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9783869306902
    • Publisher: Steidl Verlag
    • Published: September 2013
    Social and cultural transition is usually hard to gauge. New York in the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s was clearly a different place than it is now. The city was more violent and more street weird. Times Square was still wonderfully sleazy. Andrew Savulich is a photographer living and working in New York City. His work is a unique mix of spot news and street photography - capturing scenes of crime as well as everyday life. The startling immediacy of the moment prevails in his black-and-white images on which he provides handwritten captions. What at first seems like objective commentary soon reveals the photographer's dry ironic tone, at times bordering on black humour.
  • Arnold Newman: The Early Work

    By Arnold Newman

    Our Price: $35.00
    • Format: Oversize Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9783865213617
    • Publisher: STEIDL
    • Published: July 2007
    The photographs collected here - 100 tritones - were made before Arnold Newman achieved recognition as a pioneering portraitist, during his formative years from 1938-1942. Discovered in 1941 by Beaumont Newhall and Alfred Stieglitz, Newman's work can be seen to evolve and articulate the approach for which the photographer is best known, what came to be recognized as 'environmental portraiture.' So widely is its influence today, that it serves as the 'new standard' practice of diverse approaches to the medium. Illus., 100 balck-and-white photographs. 232p.

    This volume presents Bruce Davidson's personal selections from his lesser-known color archive. Ranging from a period of fifty-six years and counting, these images are representative of the photographer's color career. Assignments from various magazines (Vogue, National Geographic, Life magazine) and commercial projects led him to photograph fashion (early 1960s), the Shah of Iran with his family (1964), keepers of French monuments (1988), the supermodel Kylie Bax (1997), and college cheerleaders (1989). He photographed in India and China, but also at home in New York, in Chicago, and along the Pacific Coast Highway. In 1968, Michelangelo Antonioni invited him to document the making of his film Zabriskie Point. Davidson also continued to pursue personal projects, e.g. photographing the Yiddish writer and Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer (1972-75), the New York City subway (1980), and Katz's Delicatessen (2004). Often staying on in a country after an official assignment, he documented Welsh coalfields, family holidays in Martha's Vineyard, and travelled through Patagonia and Mexico.

    In November of 1991 Robert Frank went to Beirut on a commission to photograph the city's devastated downtown in the aftermath of the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990). Much of the work he did there, together with that of five other photographers with whom he shared the assignment, was put together in 'Beirut City Centre' (2006). Alongside that work, he also made Polaroids of the city & its environs, which, on his return home, he set aside. Years later, Frank again worked with these images, using them to create a sketch-book's worth of collages, realizing this facsimile reprint of that notebook: a sewn softcover in a paper bag w/special 4-color matt inks & a Polaroid varnish. Illus., quadrotones. 44p.

    A collection of more than 70 portraits of the Los Angeles-based photographer's family. Set mainly in and around her home in Georgia, where Gearon grew up, this series takes as its subject the interaction between the photographer, her children, and her mother, while also documenting a story with a more expansive emotional force: the closeness and the profound distance between loved ones and ourselves. Here, Gearon combines revealing tableaux, culled from her observations of family outings and routines, with a sequence of portraits of her mother. Illus., color plates. 144p.

    • Published: March 2011
    This publication presents the work of seventeen photographers living and working in South Africa today. Their diverse images engage with South Africa’s complex photographic and political past, addressing and reworking issues of identity across race, gender class and sexuality. The selection focuses on figural photography and the fictions or narrative structures that inform it. The work ranges from images of individuals and family groups to scenes depicting social rituals and daily life, elaborately staged scenarios and street fashion. Emerging from the haunting past of an apartheid state, South Africa has bred a generation of innovative and exciting photographers, seeking appropriate languages to confront the present and producing startling and compelling images. Among the photographers included here: David Goldblatt, Santu Mofokeng, Guy Tillim, Pieter Hugo, Zwelethu Methethwa, Berni Searle, Jodi Bieber, Terry Kurgan, Zanele Muholi, Hassan & Hussain Essop, Roelof van Wyk, Graeme Williams, Kudzanai Chiurai, and Sabelo Mlangeni. Illus., 280 color & b/w images. 256p.

    Robert Adams began by photographing suburban landscapes along the edge of the Rocky Mountains. His goal was then, and remainds, to acknowledge the disappearance of wilderness but also to discover a basis for affirmation. In the 1980s he went on to revisit semi-rural areas through which he had walked as a boy - landscapes no longer pristine but still notable for their quiet, space and light. The views in this book, none published before, record some of what he found compelling, the equivalent of traces of memory struck into photographic images. Illus., 118 tritone. 128p.

    American street photographer Leon Levinstein is much admired within the photographic community, but little known outside of it. Solo exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada in 1995 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2010 brought him to the attention of many, but his dynamic and original work is yet to achieve the recognition it deserves. Levinstein's fearless and unsentimental black and white images, whether shot in New York City, Coney Island, Haiti, Mexico or India, possess in Metropolitan Museum of Art Curator of Photographs Jeff Rosenheim's words, "graphic virtuosity - seen in raw, expressive gestures and seemingly monumental bodies - balanced by an unusual compassion for his off-beat subjects". In 1975, at the age of 65, Levinstein received a grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. His intention, in his own words, was to photograph "as wide a spectrum of the American scene as my experience and vision will allow". This long-awaited book fulfils this ambitious goal.

    This is the catalogue for Ed Ruscha's exhibition "Los Angeles Apartments" which will be held at the Kunstmuseum Basel from June till September 2013. In 1965, Ed Ruscha published Some Los Angeles Apartments, the third of his ongoing series of photographic books, and completed a group of ten related drawings that depict examples of the ubiquitous Southern California apartment building. The exhibition will show the preparatory studies for these drawings which were recently acquired by the Department of Prints and Drawings of the Kunstmuseum Basel. They are based directly on the photographs Ruscha made of the apartment buildings.
